Not been there since it reopened, but after the previous experience i think we will leave it for a bit as it was just to bad and still leaves a bad taste for us to go back yet

When we got there we were seated promptly but the restaurant seemed really empty which we thought was weird. And for a place that seems to have a... More

We were welcomed and seated promptly with our orders taken quickly and drinks brought to us. However after about 40 minutes I asked when our meals would be served and after checking the waitress apologised that... More

I've heard that the pub has been revamped so was looking forward to going. However, there was an extremely limited menu for Sunday lunch, food was well below par and the staff were more interested in chatting and flirting with each other than serving us. Also, only filter coffee available. Won't be back!

It has a choice of dishes for vegetarians, a range of sandwiches and other light bites for more elderly guests who desire smaller portions, as well as main courses for those who enjoy... More
